If yoga is the soul, music is the beating heart of Wanderlust Festival. True to our name, music at Wanderlust is just as much about discovery as it is about spending an evening with artists you know and love. Revel in a wide variety of musical performers in myriad settings, from epic main stage evenings to intimate pop-up shows and live performances accompanying yoga classes. O’ahu’s acts include Nahko and Medicine for the People, Brett Dennen, Roothub, DJ Drez and more. Inspired by the artists on stage? Try your own hand at a few tunes with ukulele, sack-key guitar, chanting and other music workshops.
Whether you’re an experienced yogi or brand new to the practice, you can create your ideal day of yoga at Wanderlust O’ahu. Mix in relaxing meditation and yin classes with sweaty, uplifting vinyasa and ashtanga, or challenge yourself with something completely new – such as standup paddleboard or aerial yoga. Feel the energy of hundreds of yogis breathing and moving together, or slip into to a small group class. Our festival in O’ahu offers a taste of internationally recognized teachers, including Shiva Rea, Seane Corn, Eoin Finn, Janet Stone and Schuyler Grant as well as much-loved local instructors.
Get off your mat and deep into the surrounding beauty of O’ahu! Explore the local flora and fauna with an eco-hike, adventure run, or horseback ride, or grab a bathing suit for kayaking with sea turtles or a ride in a traditional Hawaiian surf canoe.

Surf & Sup
The legendary surf breaks and protected coves surrounding Turtle Bay Resort are the perfect watery playground for surfing and standup paddleboarding. Flow through poses on your floating mat in a SUP yoga class, or stretch your sea legs with a variety of standup paddleboard and surf excursions. We have classes for all levels – including brand new beginners!
Speakeasy and Lectures
At Wanderlust O’ahu, the Speakeasy is our unique take on mo’olelo, the ancient Hawaiian tradition of sharing stories to preserve them for generations to come. Hosted at the Talk Story theatre in Turtle Bay’s Surfer Bar, our lecture series spans subjects pertaining to mindful living. With an inspiring and insightful lineup including prominent yoga teachers, musicians, authors, business leaders, filmmakers, and philosophers, the Speakeasy is just that – a casual experience where presenters can “speak easily.”
